Bachelor thesis in Business administration, School of Business and Economics at Linnaeus University, Controller, 2FE05E, spring semester 2013 Title: Non-profit sport associations management control- A multi case study of management tools Authors: Christoffer Ahlgren, Emelie Andersson and Emelie Nilsson Tutor: Anders Jerreling Examiner: Elin Funck Background: Non-profit sport associations activate a large number of people in Sweden and have a great impact on the social community. Because of the increasing complexity to operate sport associations some are experiencing serious financial problems. The daily financial work has a major impact on how the future unfolds for the sport associations. An adverse economy not only creates complications in the economic field, it also affects the sport itself. Purpose: Our purpose with this paper is to describe and explain how the economy is controlled in non-profit sport associations and the tool that is used to support this process. Methodology: This report is based on a multi case study of four non-profit sport associations in Kronoberg region, Sweden. By a qualitative study and semi-structure interviews we have collected the empirical materials. We have interviewed the president and the treasurer of each sport association. Results and conclusions: All of our chosen sport associations have defined goals, mostly sport related, for their organization but most of them are missing a strategy to achieve these goals. Budget is the most important management control tool and all of the sport associations are practicing some kind of follow up for their budgets. The associations are using non-financial measurement like game results but have a lack of financial measurements. Keywords: Non-profit sport association, management control systems, strategic planning, budget, performance measurement
